The party’s manifesto and policies, which will be based on four founding principles — spatial, social, economic and environmental justice — will be launched in January.
De Lille said Good had drawn up a constitution, which had to be submitted to the IEC for registration purposes. This provided for the establishment of a national leadership committee with three representatives from each of the nine provinces and herself as the founder member, giving a total of 28 members.
The committee would be made up of at least 70% young people and 30% experienced politicians to ensure an inter-generational mix.
Members of the national leadership committee would be announced in January. The committee would decide on what De Lille’s future role would be and whether she should be the party’s premier candidate.
The national leadership committee would drive the process of establishing and growing the party until the elections, after which formal structures would be put in place, De Lille said.
